Sustainability Strategy

Sustainable business practices are an integral part of HHLA’s business model. The company connects port terminals with hinterland networks to transport chains for environmentally friendly global flows of goods that conserve resources in an exemplary fashion. Corporate management is also geared towards the principle of sustainable value creation. In this way, HHLA demonstrates how environmental and economic targets can be reconciled with one another. see also Group Overview/Business Activities

HHLA’s sustainability strategy is based on three pillars: ecology, society and the economy. Ten fields of activity and guidelines have been defined and implemented in HHLA’s sustainability initiative. The fields of activity focus on environmentally friendly transport chains, climate protection and efficient land use. This lays the foundations for HHLA to take a leading role in the area of sustainability.
